Door To Goodbye (poem)

Updated on August 27, 2014

Can you see the door close to our goodbye

So many and more the tears put away

So many before our hearts learned to stray

And no one was sure of the reason why


No time to explore what words had to say

No time to re-shore what pain put awry

The times that we swore to give it a try

Have led to the door before us today


Those reasons galore now fall from our lips

Wild passions now sore such flames to ignite

To even a score uncertain as this


And into this war a stranger known slips

A chance to restore our reason to fight

And see that this door is closed with a kiss

      The only other singer who could convey more feeling in a song than Roy Orbison was Patsy Cline. A well-chosen video to accompany your poem.

      You write very good poems. I wish I could. Some of us have talent, and some of us do not. You are one of those who do have talent. Voted up.
